Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Shows with good Phil

Agree wholeheartedly with Rob - not the GD without Phil. He was instrumental to their improvisational style and led the charge (with Garcia) into the unknown realms and atonal sounds by virtue of his extensive music training. He was, and still is, the rock solid foundation of the sound. He'd be the first to say he had a bad night here and there, but I would challenge anyone to point out a "bad" Phil show - those are much more rare than a "good" Phil show.
